About Me

Hello and Welcome,
My name is Dr. Zena Vevaina. I have 11 years of counseling experience. I am also currently doing a lengthy series of training on Emotionally Focused Therapy. Many couples come to counseling because they are feeling stuck in certain behaviors or patterns with their partner. I am here to help you unravel "the dance" you are experiencing with your partner. Generally, our patterns with our partner are based on how we were attached to our parents in childhood. This perspective looks at how we are interacting now with each other and how it is affecting both us and the other person. Whether your choice is to stay or leave the relationship I am here to provide you a safe space. I am here to support both of you and make you both feel heard. I do not take sides in any situation. However, I also know that sometimes we have to hold each other accountable. Sometimes it takes an outside perspective to help us see things in a different light.

If you are looking for a compassionate, caring, yet fair therapist I hope to hear from you.
Warmly,
Zena
